BTTS? Yes 5/4
Correct score 1-1 13/2
First Goalscorer Callum Robinson 10/1

The Republic endured a difficult start to life under Stephen Kenny, which included a shock defeat at home to Luxembourg.

However, the Boys in Green have finally managed to build some momentum.

Indeed, they have suffered just one defeat in 10 matches, are now unbeaten in six.

The Irish have also registered four successive clean sheets; notably keeping out Cristiano Ronaldo and co in their hard-earned 0-0 draw with Portugal.

Although, they face a stern test against the world’s top-ranked team, who have won nine of their last 12 away games.

Roberto Martinez will select from a squad consisting only of players with 50 international caps or less as he continues to experiment ahead of the World Cup.

But things have not been overly straightforward for the Red Devils in recent times, with two defeats in their last four matches.

Republic of Ireland vs Belgium: Match Stats

Callum Robinson has been the Republic’s man in form of recent times.

The West Bromwich Albion forward has scored six goals in their last four matches, including a hat-trick in the 4-0 win over World Cup hosts Qatar.

He would love to build on that momentum against a less experienced Belgium defence.

In fact, both teams have scored in each of the Red Devils’ last four outings.
